Tonight, for the first time since 2019, I went back to Wrigley field. I am a ride-or-die Cubs fan and tonight was the Cubs Pride night against the Cincinnati Reds. Regardless unlike hockey, when it comes to baseball I only love the Cubs. No one else.
(Not counting Anthony Rizzo, he’s a Cub in my heart until the grave)
Anyway, the Cubs are my one true love and if we were to cast aside the abysmal baseball they’ve been playing lately, I still love this team as a whole. Wanna know what? I take that back, I always adore the Cubs, winning record or not. Therefore when I was at the game tonight for the first time in a while, I was enjoying every single players walk-up song. And one brought this age-long question to mind.
Last week I went over to Guaranteed Rate Field to see the White Sox’s Pride Game and my best friend, who is a Sox fan, asked me the prized question. What would your walk-up song be?
And today, I think David Bote answered that one for me.
For the past few years I have been thinking about getting a tattoo with those exact song lyrics on my arm. But I never thought of how empowering that is as a walk up song. If you don’t know “Brother” by NEEDTOBREATHE or even Kodaline, are two songs that will strike the deepest nerve in anyone who has brothers. My problem is I have a hard time distinguishing the two when I listen to them as they both are lyrics I’ve contemplated getting inked on my skin forever. They’re both called “Brother” and they both sound Jesusey but regardless, what an electric walk up song.
More than Celine Dion, more the David Bowie or One Direction, my walk-up song would forever be “Brother” by NEEDTOBREATHE. I’ll likely end up getting a tattoo in my brothers’ handwriting that is of Kodeline’s lyrics so I’ll balance that out perfectly with NEEDTOBREATHE as my hypothetical MLB walk up song.
Everyone has a walk-up song, what’s yours?!
